A Hong Kong Perspective, 2018
Photo: Stephanie Bailey
This presentation will map out the art world’s art-fairbiennial-museum complex as a historical and contemporary engine of globalization – a microcosm through which to explore the condition and the conditioning of the global, taking into account Fred Inglis’s assertion that the study of culture is the study of power. At the core of this perspective are the histories out of which individual hybridities have emerged, and a consideration of what these histories mean when embodied by those who have been produced by them.
